VALUABLES con­tinue to be left in cars. It’s about peo­ple be­ing vig­i­lant and look­ing af­ter se­cu­rity on their prop­erty. If you haven’t got any­thing on dis­play, of­fend­ers won’t be tak­ing it, so make sure you don’t give them the op­por­tu­nity. – Scar­bor­ough Po­lice Se­nior Sergeant Glenn Dowd­ing


A BIKE was stolen from a Churchlands home overnight on Jan­uary 29. Se­nior Sergeant Glenn Dowd­ing re­minded peo­ple to keep their homes se­cure af­ter the of­fender en­tered through an open garage door.

ON Jan­uary 29, a Stir­ling home was bur­gled while oc­cu­pants were home and cash and a lap­top was stolen.

CARINE PO­LICE have charged a man, who al­ready had his li­cense dis­qual­i­fied for life over a car chase that ended in Carine last week. The chase started when po­lice tried to stop a stolen Holden ute on Crimea Street in Mor­ley about 10.40am on Feb­ru­ary 1. The driver al­legedly failed to stop and ac­cel­er­ated away, where he con­tin­ued driv­ing in a “reck­less man­ner” through sub­urbs in­clud­ing Bal­catta. The driver aban­doned the car af­ter it hit a let­ter­box out­side a home on Al­sace Street in Carine. Mirra­booka De­tec­tives have charged the 21-year-old Leda man with var­i­ous of­fences, in­clud­ing steal­ing a mo­tor ve­hi­cle, reck­less driv­ing, hav­ing no au­thor­ity to drive, fail­ing to stop and prop­erty dam­age.
